Full Disclosure: This is originally from my previous, now-abandoned, account. I'm reposting it solely to keep my more recent works under one banner.

I made this song around 2017. I was and still am quite proud of it. Enjoy!


[Verse 1]

I see you standing there

Wondering how you got here

You take a look in the mirror

Just to see the space between

I can tell there's

More than meets the eye

And there's something missing inside


You have nothing to hide

Because nothing is there

A shallow husk of empty space

Swallows who you once were

There's nothing left to trace


You are hollow

But I complete you

You are nowhere

And I perceive you

Please let me stay

I am paving the way

For the two of us to be whole again

[Verse 2]

As I am standing there

Thinking of how I got here

I see myself in your mirror

Nothing gets past me now

I'm wondering how

I've never come across you before

I never met an

Empty soul whom I loved more


I have something to hide

I have been left stranded

I'm just a cover up of memories

Of a bygone era


You are hollow

But I complete you

You are nowhere

And I perceive you

Please let me stay

I am paving the way

For the two of us to be whole again


How did it come to this

Where did she go wrong

Tried her best and we're what's left

She made us and now she's gone

We have a choice that's forced on us

To be separate and alone

Or to be alone

Or to be alone together as one

[Verse 3]

I know it's what you want

It's something that's best for us

Let's be together

Our time is coming near

Let's fall in love and be

Whole again before we disappear


Forever bound

Forever bound

Forever bound

Forever bound

Forever bound

My favorite part was the entire thing. Could use more low end tones. Not sure what cake walk has in the way of bass or fidelity FX but it's a little thin. Just thought I'd throw that out there :)

Codefreq responds:

Thank you!

I've tried on multiple occasions to get the bass right, and eventually I had to say "enough".

At some point in the future I may try editing the mix again. Nonetheless, I'm glad you like it! :D

Hell yeah be proud of it this is super good!

Codefreq responds:

Thank you! :D
